“Detective Inspectors Alan Banks and Annie Cabbot are back, this time tying to find out how a murder/suicide came about despite being warned off by their superiors.”
— George Fox Rishel, The Sly Fox, Virden, IL

Description


“The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series now on the market.”

—Stephen King

 

Peter Robinson is one of the very best in the crime fiction business—a teller of dark police tales who stands firmly in the bestseller ranks alongside Ian Rankin and Elizabeth George. In All the Colors of Darkness, the maestro whose masterworks Janet Maslin of the New York Times compares to “the masculine, brooding work of Dennis Lehane, Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben, George Pelecanos, and Jonathan Kellerman,” brings back his unforgettable series characters Yorkshire Chief Inspector Alan Banks and Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot. A gripping story with echoes of Shakespeare’s Othello set in our contemporary age of terrorist fears, All the Colors of Darkness supports the Miami Herald’s contention that “it’s a crime if you miss [this] author.”

Praise For…


“Robinson shows a deft hand at using forensic science, conflict between characters, and recurring series themes. Another winner from one of Britain’s established A-listers.”

“As much thriller as crime story...solid...Robinson deftly integrates the requisite espionage element with his regular cast. The unexpected cliffhanger will assure readers that this chapter in Banks’s life is far from over.”

“Best-selling author Robinson branches out into new territory in what may be his best novel yet.”

“A well-written, thought-provoking continuation of our relationship with characters who inhabit the same world of darkness, accident, and concern that we all do.”

“Smoothly blends aspects of the spy thriller into what seems to be a murder-suicide....Robinson doesn’t miss a beat....All the Colors of Darkness is another example of Robinson’s seamless, insightful storytelling.”

“Smart, absorbing detective series....[Robinson’s] latest novel about Yorkshire detectives Alan Banks and Annie Cabbot is every bit as captivating as its predecessors....You’ll be eagerly awaiting their next adventure.”

“Robinson pulls the reader in from the first page of this tightly plotted story and the vividly drawn characters only enhance the pleasures of this fine novel. All the Colors of Darkness is the 18th mystery in the multiple-award-winning Alan Banks series—and it’s one of the best.”

“Robinson’s deft handling of psychological anguish makes this exploration of ‘jealousy, betrayal, envy, ambition, greed, lust, revenge—all the colors of darkness’ an outstanding addition to this distinguished series.”

“An intricate thriller.”
